    Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

    The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
    But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

    I wonder how many of those emails she deleted were related to this deal. Kinda looks like Hillary was pimping her SoS office for Clinton foundation donations.

    No wonder so many of her supporters don't want to talk about it, and probably wish this would just go away.

    Re: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal

    • Ian Telfer, who was Uranium One's chairman at the time it was being taken over by Rosatom, did donate money to the Clinton Foundation. However, he told the Financial Post that he committed those funds to the Foundation in 2008, "before Uranium One had any negotiations with the Russians, and the donations he has made since then were part of that initial pledge." Hillary Clinton also did not become secretary of state until 2009.

    • Frank Giustra, a Canadian businessman who the Times noted also donated to the Clinton Foundation and who owned the predecessor to Uranium One before its sale to the Russians, sold his personal stake in the company in 2007. The proposed sale of Uranium One occurred in 2010. Giustra himself released a statement criticizing the Times' reporting, calling it "wildly speculative, innuendo-laced," and inaccurate, and noting that contrary to the Times' claim that Bill Clinton had flown with him to conclude a stage in the Uranium deal, "Bill Clinton had nothing to do with" that purchase.

    Somehow, I just can't visualize Hillary Clinton becoming president. I keep thinking someone else is going to stand up . For awhile I thought Jim Webb may step in but time is slipping away on him. I then looked at the possibility of Rand Paul but the more I listened the more he became a typical politician.

    The number of these Clinton threads just shows how terrified the Repubs are of her because at this point they don't have a slam dunk answer to her.

    The number? Other than American's on here, I don't see another one but this one...And I am not terrified as much as I am stunned that anyone, including demo's at this point would think that Clinton is a good choice....Hell, I say please run her....She will be eviscerated....

    For just a minute if we can just change two words in your sentence : " And I am not terrified as much as I am stunned that anyone, including Reps at this point would think that Palin is a good choice....Hell, I say please run her....She will be eviscerated. "

    Nothing ever really changes just the actors.

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace,” Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said the charges laid out in the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash” “all smells” and is “pretty ugly.”
    Hume said, “The smoking gun requirement would be what you’re looking for if you’re trying to prove a bribe, an outright bribe. But if the standard is even the appearance of a conflict of interest, he’s got all of that.”
    Hume also commented on former President Bill Clinton’s skyrocketed speaking fees.
    “These donations to the foundation from these foreign governments, many of them unsavory characters at the head of them, this all smells,” Hume said. “Now, can you prove that these were bribes? No. but can anybody reasonably infer these people were trying to buy influence? Of course. The Clintons seem oblivious to that possibility, or knowing of it, and figuring they can get away with it. Of course, you have the instances in which the reporting that was supposed to occur to make all this transparent it did not. You add it all up, it’s pretty ugly.”
    Hume: Hillary's Many Appearances of Conflicts of Interest 'Smells,' 'Pretty Ugly' - Breitbart

    I guess, Pete, that you are all in favor of supporting a presidential candidate that's pretty ugly on all fronts. Well, there's no accounting for taste, I guess.

    Makes me wonder if you'd just as easily accept an equal level of stink from a more conservative candidate that Media Matter is trying to character assassinate rather than to protect. My money is on that you wouldn't.
